Ok so I recently made an article about using a natural herb called lote n I guess no one really knew what is it , the surprise is lote is jojoba :) so basically what u do is get jojoba leaves dry them make them a powder , n then add water n honey n wash ur hair with the paste , now u might say oh really how could a pasty textured recipe clean my head , girls I have it now on my head n I assure u that when I was making it I saw some bubbles coming out of it n when I applied it was easy spreaded n I massaged my head easily , now am waiting for an hour n then will tell u about the results :)

    This is the old post

    Yessssss I have been trying to translate this herb name from Arabic to english n finally it is called lote, yes google lote tree leaves powder, I have always been nagged to add it to my henna recipes this herb is very very popular in Arabia but wht I just recently figured out that it was used as shampoo and it cleanse hair perfectly and helps growth , u basically get the powder from any herbal shop I dunno if u have these small shops that only sells herbs n oils n organic stuff but am sure u wil cuz lote powder is worth it
    How u shampoo is basically do ur normal pre po oil treatment n then take one small cup of lote powder and mix it with water until u see some bubbles , then apply the paste n water to ur hair n leave for an hour n then rinse with water.
    Am planing to do it once a week n the other week is henna mask I will upload my lote powder pics it looks like henna but it's not smelly :)

    Btw we call it Sidr for powder and Sidra for the tree

    Natural shampoos are really very helpful in having healthy hair and stimulating hair growth. All natural shampoo can be made easily and inexpensively at home.

    Jujube and jojoba are not the same plant. They're not even related. It's unlikely there's an ancient Arabic name for it as it's native to the Americas (jojoba I mean).

    I'm intrigued by this jujube though. Sounds interesting!
    My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse. :happy6:

    Love: QB - all of it, Bobeam - shampoo bars, Darcy's Botanicals - Pumpkin Seed Conditioner, Coconut Cupuacu Pomade, KBN - Shealoe Leave-in, Oyin - Juices & Berries, Kinky Curly - Knot Today, Ayurvedic treatments, my Denman and the cloud of kinky goodness on my head that I get to play with! :love8:

    What's the research? Simmondsia chinensis (Jojoba) and Ziziphus zizyphus (Jujube) are not the same thing otherwise they'd have the same name!
